Aston MartinAston Martin is a British car company producing some of the worlds most prestigeous cars. It was set up in 1914 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford and the company was originally called Bamford & Martin.
Lionel Martin raced at Aston Hill and it was then that they decided to make thei own cars. Their first car was produced in 1915 but due to World War 1 production could not take place.

In 1924 the company went bancrupt but was subsequently bought but then failed again in 1925 and the factory closed in 1926.

Later in 1926 the company was started up again and it was re-named Aston Martin Motors.

In 1947 after World War II David Brown Limited bought the company and is the reason why you see the DB (David Brown) letters in the names of Aston Martins.

Due to the glamour of the Aston Martin car it was the car that was selected to be used in the 1964 Bond film "Goldfinger".
It has also appeared in Thunderball (1965), On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969), The Living Daylights (1987), GoldenEye (1995), Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), Die Another Day (2002) & also Casino Royale (2006).

Many of the Aston Martins featured in the Bond films were specially modified cars with rockets and guns but have still helped make the car as popular as ever.
